A Jackson County judge today ordered Issac Fisher to serve consecutive sentences of life in prison without the possibility of parole after he was convicted of multiple felonies in connection with three fatal shootings and the wounding of a 4-year-old child in 2018, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.
The judge ordered Fisher to serve two life without the possibility of parole sentences and a third life sentence. The judge set those sentences to run consecutively. The prosecutor had asked that setting the sentences to run consecutively would recognize each victim separately.
In addition, the judge set other sentences for other convictions -- six Armed Criminal Actions, three Burglary 1st Degrees, three Unlawful Use of Weapon and two Endangering the Welfare of a Child. Those were set to run concurrently to the life sentences. A Jackson County jury convicted Fisher, dob: 3/16/1983, of those charges.
According to court records, police were first called to the 9000 block of Kentucky Avenue in Kansas City about 9:24 a.m. on a reported shooting. A woman reported her daughter-in-law had been shot by her son, the defendant. Witnesses at the residence told police that the defendant had arrived there and had argued with the first victim. Then the witness stated she heard four to five gunshots and found the victim on the bathroom floor suffering from gunshot wounds. The defendant was seen leaving the room holding a handgun. A short time later, police in Raytown located a vehicle reportedly taken from the first crime scene on Kentucky Avenue. A witness on Laurel Avenue in Raytown told police that her finance's brother was the defendant. He had come to the residence and kicked in the door before taking a second vehicle, a white Chevrolet Traverse. About 9:37 a.m. Sunday, police in Raytown responded to the 5700 block of Elm, where they found another victim suffering from gunshot wounds. That victim was reported to be the step-brother of the defendant. A 4-year-old girl also had been shot, while a 1-year-old was present but did not sustain injuries. A witness stated the suspect in the shooting was seen leaving the residence carrying a rifle over his shoulder. He fled in a white Traverse. And at 10;28 a.m., Kansas City police responded to a shooting near 112th and Eastern. The victim found there by police was reportedly a cousin of the defendant. While still alive, the victim told a witness that a man named "Big" had shot him. The defendant goes by the nickname "Big." Police located the white Traverse behind a nearby residence. Ballistics of shell casings at three homicide scenes matched.
